Kale's Story...
Meet Kale - Kale was rescued from the Hidalgo Park area in Houston in December 2012. He was starving and suffering from intestinal worms, hotspots, demodex mange and bacterial infections.
After his rescue, he was fully vetted and treated for his medical conditions. Kale is an American Pit Bull Terrier, approximately 3 years old and weighs 52 pounds. He is heart worm positive (and receiving treatment), neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.
Kale is currently living in boarding. He loves people and loves lying outside in the sun. He also loves peanut butter treats and getting scratched behind his ears. We don’t recommend he live with cats although he is fine with other dogs.
Kale suffered so much while he was living on the streets but he has moved past that and is so happy and grateful to be safe. He will make a great addition to a lucky person’s home. For more information, please contact

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kale, a Houston American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Houston, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
